Circumcision

Circumcision

Circumcision is a minor surgical procedure aimed at removing the foreskin of the penis. For infants, it is typically performed within the first 10 days after birth, while for adults, it can be scheduled at any convenient time. Our facility, Kensington Park Medical Practice Day Surgery, offers circumcision services. During your initial consultation at our clinic, we will provide detailed information about any out-of-pocket expenses associated with this procedure.
